SaintMatty (7232) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUL 31, 2009
500ml Bottle - Golden with a white head and moderate carbonation. Malty and grassy aroma with a hint of hay. Malty and slightly sweet taste with hints of corn. Not bad, but nothing special.

(Draught at Drink, Tallinn) Poured very pale golden with medium sized and white head. Aroma was very mild with hints of grassy notes and some sweetness. Palate was watery and light bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were sweetness, mildly grass, bit of grain and mild bitterness. Aftertaste was mildly bitter.

BlackHaddock (7092) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2013
500ml out of date bottle: bought and drank while on holiday (Mykonos), 11 May 2013. Sorry to see these guys have stopped brewing: I have had a few of their beers and each has been fine, a sad loss to the Greek beer scene. This beer was pale gold and had all the usual lager/pilsner atributes: clear, bright and clean looking with a swiftly fading white head. Almost odourless apart from hints of grain in the nose. Refreshing and fairly sweet in the taste but not a huge flavouring of anything worthy of note. Pleasant to drink after laying around in the sun all day, but not a serious beer hunters target.

Finn (7038) - Troms, NORWAY - AUG 26, 2012
Flaske 0,5l. Gave fra Rune. Drukket hjemme 20 Aug 12. Lys gylden. Bra skum som stabiliserer seg lavt. St fruktig aroma. Smaken er malt med innslag av frukt. Litt i steste laget - men bra.

Borresteijn (6875) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 21, 2012
50cl Bottle on Syros, Greece. Clear golden colour, white head. Just a very bland lager, light sweet, with a hint of lemon. There are better macro(!) options in Greece. Light-bodied.

KnutAlbert (6754) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 23, 2006
On tap in Syros, Greece. Not the most outstanding beer in their range. A soft Bohemina-style lager with a flowery aroma. Could do with a hoppy twist in the finish.

zvikar (6022) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - NOV 16, 2011
At a tasting, thanks Oren, pours yellow with a small head, aroma of sour malt and fruits, flavor of malt with some toasted bread and acids, extremely light body.

altonbrownd (5898) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - JUN 16, 2011
Bottle in Athens. Dark gold body with big head. Hoppy and corny nose. Taste of malts and caramel. Quite creamy and smooth. Nice buttery finish.

mkel07 (5742) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JAN 16, 2010
330ml bottle. Gold honey straw colour with a dense creamy white foam head. Clear with mild carbonation and a salty aroma of malt and hops, nothing outstanding. Full flavour with a slight metallic aftertaste. Feels good in the mouth. Okay without being great.

Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 29, 2011
Draft @ brewpub. A shade brassier and flatter/less bright than the pils. Stable head. Very fresh grain aroma is sweet and bland but clean, much nicer than the bottled version I had a day earlier. Clean pure malt with fruity undertones, is not too sweet. Is good, balanced, and refreshing.
